Since y'all are soooo much smarter than me, perhaps you may care to comment up this "myth"....

Supposedly, the SS195LF ammo has a primer with a 10 year shelf life.... something about how the primer is made with out lead, it still goes bang when struck, but degrades over time.

I just a dumb old country dentist... but fer me and my boys, we're stockin' up on SS197 when given the chance.

I believe that one of the rep's from FN stated that the shelf life of SS195 is the same as all others, indefinite.

I'm stocking up on SS195, IMO, after all the reading/tests on this site and others, it's the better defensive round.

Well, reloaders on several sites claim that the shelf life on lead free primers are 2-3 years, despite what FN says. So, who really knows...

lol

203 years?!?!?!?! Indefinite was good enough answer, and just as viable at that point :x

Never had lead-free primers go bad in 2-3 years. I wouldn't worry about it.

Can't say that I see SS195LF as the better defensive round. Depends on the specific application. For home defense, I would go with SS197.

The 195 has better wound characteristics....it was designed as a civilian available defensive round to replace the ss192, while the 197 was designed as a practice round, or FN's words, a sporting round. Again, this is from FN.

not that I would grab the PS90 in a self defense situation anyway, but just saying :lol:

I still don't understand why ppl don't think the ps90 is one of the greatest self defence/ tactical assault weapon systems out there.

The 197 rules as a personal defence round..I have shot it at coconuts/watermelons...and a big thing of beef hash...lol it rules...very impressive results.

The 195 is also way cool and it does go through a bullet proof vest...again, tried it out and very impressed.

I agree.
I am planning to test it vs some german Flektarn vests my buddy is trying to get me this year.

CAUTION: we cannot tell you what you can or can't designate as your target on this forum - but please be aware of the rules.

This subject matter is starting to delve into what I would consider "nefarious" subject matter.

Cheers,
